Hi
I don't think I posted any photo's of my "1"
So here we go, got a bit of work done, new Hagon shock, S/S braided lines and fitted a Hepco & Becker rack.

Very nice, the semi-mythical Mk2 CB-1, with the dark engine and alloy parts, longer (quieter) exhaust, higher handlebars and allegedly a slightly bigger tank and thicker seat pad.

Thanks a_morti and speedysmurf for your comments.
Yes I believe its the mk2 by colour anyway not that much difference really just subtle differences to my6 mind.
I got it very clean and have kept it that way
Just had to fit the small screen for comfort on motorway and streights, I think it blends in well
Hoping to get back on board a bit more later as I'm recovering from a knee replacement and its taken a bit longer than I thought to get back.
The weather is picking up now hopefully the knee will also.

Does look very nice, and the seat does indeed look a little "plusher" than mine... Swingarm looks different too, but that could just be the darker colour  Undecided

How, deeper side scallops? I wondered that but thought maybe just an illusion caused by the paint... apart from that it looks same as mine.

Can't say I can see any difference in the tank (need to be side by side )

I did get the seat redone as there was a small tear in original, and he suggested an extra bit if padding fof comfort.

I can't see much difference with the side panels ...... but did repaint all panels, the ones up front, the ones under the seat and the rear foot rests ...... I matched the frame colour as nearas possible.

How are you finding the screen helps with motorway spins and straights? I'm up and down between Galway and Dublin weekly at the moment and taking a beating for 2 hours. Could really do with some wind protection.

Hi Sean
I have never really driven it without the screen, as I fitted it soon after I got my "1".
From memory it did make quite a difference as I had not been on bikes for a while and it made it more comfortable for such a small screen, for me anyway.
Where are you based Dublin or Galway ?

Based in both at the moment. Working 3 days from Dublin in Sandyford (living in Killiney) and the other 2 from Galway/Achill. So plenty of miles racking up Smiley My only complaint is the wind on the motorway as I'm up and down every week. The screen looks like it might be a nice addition and might make my trip that bit easier!

There's a decent sized power bronze fly screen I took off my cb-1 sat in dad morti's cupboard. It's a decent size and really improves cruising speed comfort, much more than you'd think.

20 & post? I'm guessing post to Ireland is relatively dear though?

Also reliant on dad morti being happy to box it up.

Sean,
Thats a fair few miles/Kms you are clocking up all right, especially with our lovely weather !!!!
The screen is a Givi universal I got in BikeWorld years ago, I'm sure it should help somewhat.

Stussels
Its just a sticker with some Japanese writing on it most likely connected to oil refil/type, most of the text is worn away so too hard to read.

I might take you up on that in the future. Any idea what weight it would be so i can check postage?

It's a fair whack of miles alright and the motorway wind is a killer. I've been doing the same spin for a month now and it hasn't actually rained yet which is worrying. I'd imagine it'll be a rude awakening when it does Smiley
